Mulled Apple Cider

On a cold, blustery day, nothing warms you to the core like a nice hot cup of mulled cider. Black pepper adds an unexpected kick to this version. Bring a pitcher to your next festive fall gathering, paired with our fresh apple pie.

Game plan: If you prefer, you can remove the steeping ingredients before serving by pouring the cider through a fine-mesh strainer.
